Q. Where did you get the idea for Aubrey to go back to the people she’d wronged and make amends?

I’ve always wanted to take a “mean” girl and turn her around.  There’s no easy way to do that except to start at the beginning and make amends.

Review: In Bloom by Katie Delahanty

 

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

Ahhhhhh – where to begin?  I am of two minds about In Bloom.  Part of me loved the whole fantasy of this read – young woman meets rock star and gets to live the dream of being his girlfriend.  Part of me didn’t like all that her new relationship entailed.  While many women would faint at the thought of being pampered and getting celebrity make-overs, complete with designer gowns and shoes, the thought of needing five dedicated individuals to help get me ready for a night on the town made me kind of nauseous.  So while I could buy into the fantasy  of living a glamorous life, I was left thinking – Nah, that just would not be fore me!

Review: The Tycoon’s Socialite Bride by Tracey Livesay

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

The Tycoon’s Socialite Bride is a lightning quick read, and at first, I wasn’t feeling it.  I didn’t like Marcus, and I thought he was a jerk, while Pamela was pretty darn near perfect.  I really liked her, and sympathized with her.  Her father, a retired senator, is referred to by Pamela as the Senator – never with a more endearing name.  How sad is that?  Since the death of her mother, Pamela can’t do anything right, at least not according to her father, who lives to keep the family name and traditions above reproach.  His daughter falls far short of doing the right things, in his esteemed opinion, and he’s never shy about bringing up every shortcoming and fault he finds.  Ugh.

Review and Giveaway–Can’t Stop Lovin’ You by Lynnette Austin

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I couldn’t resist the combination of a small town and a veterinarian hero.  Plus, Can’t Stop Lovin’ You features a second chance at love trope, and you all know how much I love those!  I enjoyed this book, though I thought there were a few pacing issues near the middle that kept it from getting a higher grade.  I really liked Brawley, the contrite hero, but I wondered if he would be able to convince Maggie that he deserved a second chance.

Cover Reveal: Hold On Tight by Serena Bell

This morning I have a cover reveal for Serena Bell’s Hold On Tight.  Check it out!

A note from author Serena Bell…

Hold on Tight, my June release, is all about secrets. Mira Shipley’s secret baby, the one she conceived with army Ranger Jake Taylor before he vanished for eight years. The secrets Jake keeps from Mira even once he’s home from war, emotionally battered and physically injured. And the biggest secret of all—the one they’re both keeping—how strong their feelings are, and how fast they’re falling for each other.

So I figured it was time to let one secret out of the bag: Hold on Tight’s fabulous cover. Without further ado, here’s the first peek at Mira and Jake:
